My son is 3yrs old and he wont color nor write. Hes known his alphabets and numbers since he was 1 so i have no problems with that. He been spelling his name since he was 2yrs old but he would never color or write anything. I have literally 113 coloring books and 3 notebooks, i have construction paper, regular paper every color you can think of, i even printed out his favorite characters nothing. I went to the store over the weekend and bought different types of crayola markers crayons finger paints and my son still wont color or write. Im kinda concerned and sort of feeling like a failure.





I need help please!!!!

He's 3. You aren't a failure. He sounds very bright.... just not interested in writing yet. Does he like to play with playdoh, do puzzles, or anything else that works the fine motor skills? You can strengthen the muscles he will use for writing later by other forms of play that he might be interested in. The writing/coloring will come in time.

My son loves books and drums he have some dinosaurs from the dinosaur train. My son dont like his hands or clothes dirty so he dont play with the 32 boxset playdoh i got him for his birthday in july. The only way he will play with a puzzle is when i do mommy and me time and i try to squeeze in the writing or coloring and that dont work.





Thank you so very much
